Cassper Nyovest opened up about his relationship with the late hip hop star Jabulani ‘HHP’ Tsambo, and how it benefited him greatly.
The Gusheshe hit maker says he learnt a lot about the late star, especially on music and running business.
“I always say what I could’ve learnt in 10 years I learnt in the two years I was with HHP. The reason I was unfu*kwithable is because I was right next to best, that was the greatest. That’s the most commercially appealing artist. Nobody did brands like him, nobody crossed over to white people like him. He did Strictly Come Dancing and he changed his brand.”
Nyovest has filled various stadiums from 2015 till 2022 and the first Fill Up the Dome was inspired by Jabulani.
“Even the Dome he said, I should do it and that time I don’t have one hit to my name.”
Cassper Nyovest earned money back in the days by being Jabba’a hypeman at shows.
The later star believed in Cass’ dreams and future.
“My biggest dream at that point was to be signed to Jabba and he would always tell me at that point that I’m not an artist you should be signed, I could be a businessman. He would say that I could be as big as Lil Wayne and I would be like, ‘This guy is so crazy I’m hungry and I just want to release this album.'”
